Today we interview two Australian ex-pat musicians of two different cities and musical genres - Vancouver-based vocalist, Jess Cullen and Montreal-based MC, Craig Thorn (Cee). Jess hails from a small community in Central Queensland. She relocated to Vancouver a few years ago at the tail-end of a world trip. Jess talks about her cross-continental musical journey, and we sample some tracks you will hear at her self-titled record release next Tuesday night at the Electric Owl, including first single 'Old Piano'.
Craig Thorn who goes by the MC name Cee, likewise took the life-changing step to Canada to continue his career, along with his brother Notion. Craig compares the musical landscapes of Melbourne and his adopted home of Montreal and speaks to the challenges involved in sustaining a musical career as an ex-pat Aussie overseas. And keep listening to hear about his involvement in the burgeoning hip karaoke movement that is taking North America by storm!
